Each cycle of wash/rinse/dry takes about 3 minutes and it takes about
that long to fetch and load a tray with about 20 individual dishes (and
if it is a particularly cheesy meal, to scrub off the sticky
bits). Since each meal typically has about 15-20 loads, that's the
gating factor.

When we have our money saved up, we are going to remodel our kitchen and
replace the current Hobart with a pass through one so that our
getting-older backs don't have to bend down as much to load and unload!
